Bakili’s corruption case withdrawn

157

In the never ceasing corruption case involving Malawi’s former President Bakili Muluzi and Lyness Whiskey involving the  misappropriation of about K1.7 billion funds from international donors, the application Muluzi made has been withdrawn.

Muluzi applied for a constitutional review in which he was asking the Chief Justice to determine whether the MK1.7 billion theft case answering was to be tried as a constitutional matter not criminal.

The case which the ex Malawi leader claims was politically driven by late President Bingu wa Mutharika, whom he was not in terms with was recently in the media as Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda opted to refer back to the High Court his (Muluzi)  application or a  constitutional review on the corruption case.

Muluzi; His case returns in court again.

According to  Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Deputy Director Reyneck Matemba Judge MacLean Kamwambe gave a go ahead to the withdrawal which means that the MK1.7 billion theft case Muluzi is answering will return to the high court for further trial.

ACB says that the case will resume at the high court as a criminal matter on April 11, 2016 saying two weeks has been put forward for the proceedings without any interruptions.

“The stage we are at now is that what was dragging down the case is gone. It’s now a new chapter as all preliminary issues on this case have been sorted out such that the court has given two weeks to proceed with the case without injunctions, adjournment in between those two weeks that we carry the trial thoroughly starting from April 11, 2016’’ he said.

For over six years, Muluzi has been answering charges of corruption in which he is accused of squandering public funds amounting to 1.7 billion Kwacha.
